What Is an OB/GYN?

An obstetrician-gynecologist (OB/GYN) is a medical doctor specializing in women’s reproductive health. They provide comprehensive care for women from puberty through pregnancy and menopause. They can perform various procedures, such as Pap smears and pelvic exams, provide prenatal care, and deliver babies. It is important to consult with an OB/GYN for routine check-ups, family planning, and any concerns related to women’s care.

Setting the Standard for Women’s Care Services

While reproductive care is an important facet of women’s health, it certainly isn’t the only thing we do at Family HealthCare Network. We offer a range of women’s care services, including the following:

Prenatal Care

At Family HealthCare Network, we understand the importance of prenatal care in ensuring a healthy pregnancy and delivering a healthy baby. Our dedicated team of OB/GYNs provides comprehensive prenatal care services that cater to the unique needs of every expectant mother. These services range from regular health check-ups and routine lab tests to ultrasound scans and genetic screenings. We also offer valuable advice on nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle changes necessary for a healthy pregnancy. Educational resources and counseling are provided to help soon-to-be mothers prepare for childbirth and parenthood. Our goal is to ensure that each pregnancy is closely monitored, potential risks are mitigated, and every mother feels supported throughout her pregnancy journey.

Postpartum Care

Postpartum care is an integral part of our holistic approach to women’s healthcare at Family HealthCare Network. Recognizing that the period after childbirth can be as challenging as the pregnancy itself, we provide all-encompassing postnatal care services to assist new mothers in their recovery process and transition into motherhood. Our postpartum care includes regular health assessments to monitor the mother’s physical recovery, emotional support to help manage potential postpartum depression or anxiety, breastfeeding guidance, and contraceptive counseling. We also provide newborn care education to ensure mothers feel confident in caring for their infants. By offering comprehensive postpartum care, we aim to enhance the wellbeing of both the mother and the newborn, fostering a healthy start to their new life together.

Breast Exams

Regular breast exams are of utmost importance for maintaining women’s health. By conducting thorough examinations, we can identify any abnormalities or changes in their breasts that may require further medical attention. Early detection through routine breast exams significantly increases the chances of successful treatment and improves overall outcomes.

Cervical Cancer Screening

Don’t skip cervical cancer screenings! Screenings typically involve Pap smears or HPV tests and ensure reproductive health issues are caught early. Using our thorough approach, we can identify abnormal cells before they progress into cancer.

Mammogram Referrals

We can’t overstate the importance of regular mammograms. These screenings detect signs of breast abnormalities before they develop into full-blown cancer. Women aged 50 to 74 should get a mammogram every two years, and younger women should talk to their doctor about frequency. Women younger than 50 may need more or fewer mammograms based on their risk factors.

Menopause Education

Menopause typically occurs between the ages of 45 and 55 when the ovaries stop producing eggs, but not everyone is well-versed in what this change entails. Education about menopause is crucial for women as they navigate this natural transition in their lives. A comprehensive understanding of menopause empowers women to manage its symptoms and make informed decisions about their health and wellbeing. We’ll discuss these symptoms of menopause, among others:

  • Changes in mood
  • Hair loss
  • Joint stiffness
  • Night sweats
  • Changes in sex drive
  • Brain fog
  • Recurring urinary tract infections
  • Hot flashes
  • Headaches
  • Anxiety
Pap Smears

Are you due for a Pap smear? Our walk-in clinic offers these exams regularly. During the test, a healthcare provider collects cells from the cervix and sends them to a laboratory for examination. The cells are analyzed to find any abnormal changes that may indicate precancerous or cancerous conditions. We highly recommend regular Pap tests for early detection and prevention of cervical cancer.

Urinary Tract Infection Treatment

If you’ve noticed signs of a urinary tract infection (UTI), don’t hesitate to see us for urgent care. We’ll evaluate your condition and prescribe the treatment best suited to you. Our team typically uses antibiotics to relieve symptoms and may recommend small lifestyle changes to support the recovery process.
